Psalm 126 has been in my heart for some time. I have returned to this psalm several times in my life when I am either in a season to plant or a season of harvest.
In seasons of planting, I have moved in faith without a glimpse of the horizon. I did what I knew was best, knowing the LORD would hear my prayers. When a long awaited prayer is answered, it can be humbling. In my experience, the LORD’s work is often far greater than what I imagined. I had tears of pain in the planting and tears of joy in the harvest. To know the LORD’s beautiful work, I’ve had to take courage and walk some long dusty trails.
Thank you LORD for hearing our prayers and for the comprehensive ways you answer us. Your work is far better than our own.
See you tomorrow for Psalm 127.
